Oscar Party

Amanda Sherred (top center) hosted an Oscar party tonight.

I have to confess, I'm not a big Oscar follower (because typically the awards are for movies I've never heard of before) so I mostly just went for the wine and the company.

Kerry Rose (right) was there, who unbeknownst to her was actually the reason I started blogging. She got me hooked on Supermom's blog (aka Melany in South Africa) and I started Random Cathy not too long after that.

Amanda is great at throwing parties. We were greeted by a red carpet when we entered the door and we wound up playing movie trivia during commercials.

On the red carpet, Amanda set up a photo op. We took turns mimicking the poses we've all seen. And Amanda totally had the "dress" pose down that all the actresses seem to do for maximum sveltness. To see our red carpet poses, click here.

I'm not sure why we started doing these "Ladies of AD" events, except that we do two family events during the year and us women who work there want to see the wives of the men we work with more often than twice a year. All of us comment on how uncommon it is for that many cool people to wind up in one place.

So, as you might have guessed. None of this was about the Oscars at all. Hmmm....I wonder what our next opportunity could be.... How many days until Cinco de Mayo?
